Listen to Sunny New Songs from Diego Garcia’s New Album “Paradise”

Sep 14th, 2013 in Music


We first discovered Diego Garcia in 2011 following the release of his solo debut album Laura.  On that album Garcia fittingly and beautifully combined nylon-stringed Latin sounds (given his Argentine parents) with English-lyric, ’60s-crooner romanticism to tell the story of his lost and found love, Laura (who he would eventually marry).  Two years later Garcia will soon release a new album, Paradise, which continues and expands upon this melodious melange.  Garcia has made two tracks from the album available for streaming, Sunnier Days and Start With The End, which you can listen to below.  As you will hear, Sunnier Days (which is also downloadable) is pop magic that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Belle & Sebastian album (high praise in our book).  Garcia has said that Sunnier Days “is one of my proudest moments. For me, it’s a strong pop song in that it takes your mind off things, both sonically and lyrically. But underneath the surface there is a deeper spiritual message that hopefully bring you closer to the truth.”  After, check out Start With The End, the propulsive Spanish-guitar album opener. About the song, Garcia says, “It was the last song written for the record and I felt like making a little noise to celebrate.  I got my girl back, I have a family now. I spent three years on the road, and the future is wide open. We brought this new energy to this completely new place in my life. But in real life there are still cracks, and as an artist what I’m intrigued by is looking into those cracks for whatever beauty is there. That never goes away.”

These songs bode incredibly well for Paradise, which you can order HEREGarcia will soon head out on a US tour in support of the album and you can check the dates HERE.
